Charlotte: Second PTC beer dinner at Table

Posted by Pop The Cap on January 21st, 2007

The first Pop The Cap beer dinner at Table in Charlotte has sold out, so Chef Gene Briggs has added a second dinner. Due to the awful weather this week throughout much of North Carolina, this second dinner has been moved to Thursday, 2/8. A few seats remain — but RSVP quickly, as both dinners as originally planned were sold out. Chef Gene has quite a reputation.

Yours truly, Sean Wilson of PTC, will be there for this second dinner.

We’ll have plenty of beer, so come on out!

Details:
Thursday, February 2
6:30 seating
$50 plus tax and tip ($10 per seat goes to support Pop The Cap)

See http://www.tablecharlotte.com/tablespecialevents.html for the menu and directions.
